When you get a dress made to order does your dressmaker make you a headband too???

-When I maked a solo dress, my price includes the dress, shall(cape), bloomers to match the lining, and a crown. I suggest that when you employ a dress maker, you ask what her price includes. I also include a ziplock bag with an 8"x8" swatch of each fabric used in the dress as well as a list of all the embroidery/satin stitch threads on an index card. This way if there are any *accidents* with dresses, the little rescue kit can sometimes be enough to save the dress.

-I provide a crown, scrunchies, and flashpants with each solo dress order. Each individual dressmaker has her own way of doing things, though;)

-Usually the dressmaker can make them. Whether they are included in the price is another question. my dress quotes are for the dress and bloomers. I give a discount on any tiara, headpiece, or dress bag that is ordered though.

-I always include the headband (tiara) and bloomers.
